Sunday Afternoon At the Lake

Come and play,
Dance and sing,
Where the rivers flow wild
And the grass is green.

Come and play,
Dance and sing,
Among the dandelions,
Here with me

In the valley of
The truffula trees,
Where we can run
Wild and free.

Fred and Stanley and Me

You and me and Stanley
Make three. Or maybe two, or four,
Or seven or more.

Measure twice, cut once,
Keep it straight, don’t fuss.

Sand it down,
Paint it up,
Let it dry and wrap it up.

Merry Christmas, happy birthday.
Need a lift?
Nothing says, “I love you!”
Like a handmade gift.

Twilight Fun

Laughter rings out o’er
The land as evening darkens
Into night, and children

Fly out of sight, and
Kittens wander ‘tween outstretched
Hands, basking in love.

New memories of
Fam’ly fun are easily
Made in the twilight.

Sweet Sunshine

The sweet scent of fresh-
Cut grass lingers in the air
As the storm rolls in.

Dandelions whip
Back and forth in the wind, but
Still the scent remains

Of sunny days and
Sweet green grass, of happiness
And friendship and fun.

The House Next Door…

thnd…is a frightfully fun read. A spooky tale of demons and darkness, with a fabulous cover by Hazel Butler, this book had me afraid to turn off the light. Mister Jones’ luck is as bad as ever in the third installment of this series, thanks to his equally unlucky neighbor lady, and many of the same characters from the first two books have returned as well. The enigmatic Eric is rapidly becoming one of my favorite characters.

I haven’t enjoyed a series like this since I read the Goosebumps and Fear Street books as a kid. I do hope there will be many more to come. 😀

So, what’s Mister Jones gotten himself into this time? Behold, ze blurb:

Mister Jones thought he had finished with the supernatural world – but the supernatural hadn’t finished with him…

When Sheila Balsam finds herself compelled to buy a genuine antique in a strange little shop, she didn’t bargain for what came with the statuette – and Mister Jones finds himself once again drawn into the dangerous world of the paranormal : this time via the house next door.

An ancient evil has found a way to break from his enchanted prison and the only one who is going to stand in his way is the unfortunate Mister Jones, who seems destined to live in interesting times.

About the Author

Will Macmillan Jones lives in Wales, a lovely green, verdant land with a rich cultural heritage. He does his best to support this heritage by drinking the local beer and shouting loud encouragement whenever International Rugby is on the TV. A fifty-something lover of blues, rock, and jazz, he has just fulfilled a lifetime ambition by filling an entire wall of his home office with (full) bookcases. When not writing, he is usually lost with the help of a satnav on top of a large hill in the middle of nowhere.

His major comic fantasy series, released by Red Kite Publishing, can be found at www.thebannedunderground.com, and information on his other work and stuff in general at www.willmacmillanjones.com. There’s a blog. There’s always a blog, isn’t there?

You can find The House Next Door wherever find e-books are sold.

Of course, if something a bit lighter is more your cup of tea, I’ve got the cure for that, too. Feeling froggy? Check out The Banned Underground books. And for the young (at heart or otherwise), there’s the Snort and Wobbles books as well. I recommend reading them all – you won’t regret it! 🙂
